HOW THEY DM6DGED JT.
The methods of aredging were sot Hear so
good then as they are now. The Way they
had to keep open the channel of the canal
was by running down a little scow boat, tbat
scooped out a few hundred tons of sand.
Then they did not know what to do with
that sand when they got it. These boats
would travel back and forth 'and try to find
a place to dump. In other words they were
robbing Paul a good deal more than they
could pay Peter, because all this territory is
sandy on its surface.
Here comes the difficulty now. I Teally
ought not to tell so much until X am ready
to tell It, but it is well it should be said
here. With an average depth of 12 feet in
every inch ot a ship canal; with, say: 100
miles that would ueed slack water, with a
sandy soil, that would be fcontinnally pour
ing sand into that water sand something
would drop. Ton can see that as a matter
of necessity, there would be a precipitation
of sand that wonld be a serious incon
venience to a ship canal. Dredge boats
must always be kept on a ship canal, such
as would be one running from Brie to
THEY. STUCK IN THE SAND.
On the old canal there were some particu
larly bad places. Frequently a dozen boats
would gather at the same point, because one
or two got stuck in the sand. If there were
not enough horses to pull the first boat out
of the water, and slide it along on the sandy
bottom, then it would have to be unloaded
until the cargo was light enough to be
moved. ButJf there happened to be enough
horses the boat wonld be pulled through or
pulled to pieces, water or no water.
With a shallow canal gathering so much
sand in the slack water jiortions, how much
more would a canal of 12 feet in depth accu
mulate? The character of the surrounding
soil is not going to be changed simply be
cause the style of the canal is changed.
This precipitation will be one of the worst
difficulties which will be encountered by a
ship canal. But it will not be so hard to
overcome as in the earlier davs.

So Say Henry Clcvri Ss Ctu, Kesardlng the
Financial and Indnitriat Ootlook
Great Dtrelopment In the
Xintter Line is Now
New Yoke, December 29. Henry Clews
Ss Co., in their financial circular, to be
issued to-morrow, will say: "The year closes
with an unusually sound and satisfactory
condition of business, and this fact suggests
hopeful anticipations for 1890. There
is scarcely a single industry or
branch of trade from which satisfactory
reports do not come. It is true that the
West has some complaints about the low
prices of agricultural products; but if is not
to be overlooked that the harvest has been
an abundant one and that the extra yield
will compensate for the lowness of prices:
while the country at large will be benefited
and its consumption of other articles in
creased by the cheapness of Western food
"There is every symptom that we are in
the midst of a period ot great industrial de
velopment; and, so tar, there is no evidence
that production is going seriously ahead of
our consumptive capacity. The general
steadiness of prices shows that along with
the increasing production we have a
corresponding increase of consump
tion, which preyents unhealthy
surpluses of products and maintains a
wholesome relation between supply and de
mand. Ordinarily, such a state ol th intra ss
now exists wonld have led to an undue ex
pansion of business and to excessive specu
lative ventures; but at present the spirit of
business is self-possessed and conservative.
"It is also a fact worth noting that the un
equaled expansion ot railroad building in
1886, 1887 and 1888 has not been followed
by any of that financial collapse which has
attended all like movementsin former years.
Tbe only noticeable reaction has been aeon
traction for a few months in the demand for
steel rails and iron; but even that is disar
pearingand the iron trade seems to be verg
ing on a revival of extraordinary activity,
due to an increased demand from every
branch of consumption.
"We enter upon 1890, therefore, with a
generally well-balanced condition of affairs,
with our productive resources in fall
activity, with prices low enongh to admit
of a large consumption and yet of fair
profits to producers, with generally har
monious relations between employers and
employed, with a sound condition of
commercial credit, with a "conservative
spirit among men of business, and
yet with an ample reserve of capital
available for investment in sound en
terprises. Under snch a condition of
things, there can be little question about
the prospects of railroads. They are likely
to go beyond the large increases of both
gross and net earnings of the past year, and
having paid dearly for their experience in
reckless 'cutting,' their management may
be expected to be pacific and conservative.

New yoRK, December 29. Lieutenant
Lewis ana his company of the Eleventh In
fantry, stationed at Bedloe's Island, had an
exciting time yesterday, and a battle with
an enemy who nearly drove them off the
island. The enemy was a 4-year-old r?d
Texas steer, with a nobby pair of horns that
were worth more than all the muskets in
tbe company when he used them at short
It has not been determined yet jnst where
this red steer came from. Some say he fell
overboard from the steamship Queen, while
a lot of his kind were being loaded in tbe
stream,and others that he walked off a cattle
lighter. Be that as it may, Mr. Steer was a
good swimmer, and when he landed on the
east side of the island, yesterday morning,
he just shook himself dry, nibbled & bit of
grass for breakfast, and then started off at a
brisk trot to explore Jersey's annex. One
of the sentries on the pier saw him coming
and gave the alarm.
EASIEB SAID THAN DONE.
Lieutenant Lewis mustered Company B
and ordered them to capture the foe. Easier
said than'done. Before the boys could de
cide on a plan of action the gentleman from
Texas, who had been regarding them with
interest from an elevated position, made up
his mind to attack. Lowering his head be
executed a double quick flank movement
and then charged the company. They all
executed a lightning rear movement except
Private Jack Fellows, who said he was not
afraid of any steer except a banco steer.
When the visitor from Texas lifted Private
Fellows over his back and landed him on a
gun carriage Private Fellows chsnged his
opinion very rapidly.
Tbe fun bad only just begun. The steer
galloped, bellowing after the demoralized
company, and drove them across the island.
After awhile Superintendent Littlefield, of
the electric light plant, tried to corner the
animal. He got tossed for his pains, and
went limping back to his den.
A SCAEE SUEE ENOUGH.
When the steer got tired and warm he
went,down to the river, shook the Bedloe
Island dust from his tail, and set off to swim
to Ellis Island, where the powder and dyna
mite is stored. Then there was a genuine
scare. Private Boach and Corporal Will
Clark jumped into a boat and rowed after
him. He swam so fast that they had all
they could do toihead him off in time to
stop him from landing: Then he played
tag with them, and succeeded ia landing on
Bedloe's Island acain 'before they did.
Why somebody didn't shoot him nobody
knows, and,, once more he was monarch of
Liberty Island, a little wetter, but still full
It was late in the afternoon before Chris
tian Scripture, the soldier eowboy, succeed
ed in lassoing the brute. Even then it took
lots of diplomacy to secure him where he
would do no more harm, and Company B
did not qbarrel to see who should stand sen
tinel over him last night. How to get him
off the island for good was the next thing.
The captain of the regular steamer said that
steering was hard enough now, and that be
did not want a quartermaster with horns.
Not until a cattle boat landed a load of
steers on the pier, this morning, could this
one be persuaded to leave the island. He
forgot himself while introductions were tak
ing place, and he walked aboard the boat
with the rest, and was taken baek-to his up

Habtfobd, December 29. John S.
Bailey, a yeteranjplnmber, of Middletown,
a few days ago returned with his wife from
a trip to Vineland, K. 7., where they had
been visiting friends. On their way to take
the cars Mr. Bailey made a slight misstep,
and fell down. He complained of hurting
his side considerably, but thought little of
it and returned to Middletown.
A day or two afterward he caught cold,
and in the course of it felt an irresistible
desire to sneeze, which he did heartily.
The sneeze cave him such intense pain that
his screams' could have been heard a half
Sr. Cleveland was sent for and found that
when Mr. Bailey sneezed he had broken
three of his ribs. He probably cracked
them when he fell, and the strain of the
sneeze caused them to break.
